A very pleasant surprise

Everywhere I look in Seoul new infrastructure for bikes is springing up. Some of it is simply a recognition that bikes tend to share the pavements [sidewalks] here, with shared path signs proliferating. And some of it is intended mainly for leisure, such as the cycleways along the River Han, which seem to be growing daily:

BUT, out on a spin around a new part of town last week, look what made me smile:

New segregated cycle path

It’s labelled (in Korean) as a cycleway, is quite clearly still under construction (men were also re-laying the pavement alongside), and rather than going nowhere it actually connects one Seoul suburb with another. Although I failed to snap them, there were a handful of cyclists already out trying this new route.

As an added bonus, one particularly nice stretch runs by a row of brightly-coloured flower shops:
